Blackpool Sands is a beautiful cove near Dartmouth. It is privately owned and during the summer has a small shop, a hire shop,a great cafe and small charge car park. The whole place is very well-kept and perfect for families. In the summer dogs are banned but in the winter they are allowed as it is very quiet. We took... More

Being open all year around makes this a great place to pop in for lunch or tea whenever you are passing whilst on holiday or just a weekend away. A full menu with local fresh produce and beautifully presented, it is a place we intend to spend more time at in the future.

I called in yesterday, with my daughter, for a drink whilst enjoying the beautiful early November weather. As today was much the same my husband and I called in, with our dog, for an early lunch. We had fish and chips which took over 20 mins to arrive, the fish was oily and the chips were cold. They had been... More

Used to love the 'Venus' cafe chain as a typically beachy eatery, probably enjoyed best on a hot sunny day in your swimmers , but no reason for it not to be good for an October lunch stop. Managing to avoid the Blackpool Sands beach parking charge as we were visiting the café was a good start but the biggest... More

Amazing location but very overpriced! Kids food was over £9 (for a hot dog and below average fries). The chilli was mainly veg and little meat. Only positives were the tasty mackerel baps ..... and good place to grab a decent take away coffee for the beach.

Cannot rate the Venus Cafe highly enough! The location is beautiful, the food delicious, and the staff are amazing! Staff were fantastic; really friendly, relaxed but professional, and went out of their way to ensure things were perfect. All our guests raved about the food, great veggie and vegan options too. Couldn't ask for more!

Super modern cafe overlooking one of the most pristine beaches I have ever seen. Stopped off here for a break while walking the coastal path between Torcross and Dartmouth. Cafe very clean and spacious with good choice of food. Excellent coffee and cakes. Nice service.

We recently had our daughters wedding reception at the Venus Café. The location is superb, the food was excellent and a perfect day was made by the staff who went that extra mile all the time. Thank you Venus Café!!
